Samuel’s Gorge, Kaleidoscope Horizons , 2016
The 2016 Kaleidoscope Horizons is the more boisterous of the Samuel’s Gorge reserve blends. The wine is structurally supported by a tessellation of Tempranillo tannins, allowing Grenache to sing, Graciano to provide aromatics and acidity.
This beguiling blend will lead you down a path of smouldering cherry wood, marshy bogs, cured pancetta and cacao nibs. The wine grants the avid and willing taster a spice matrix accompanied by dark lifted aromatics of poached satsuma plum and polished mulga wood. Like clouds rumbling over the ocean, the elements of this wine gather and are then refracted like an ever-changing kaleidoscope, finishing with poise and structure.
The wine transcends one to Ho Chin Minh city night market; an intoxicating atmosphere, that like the wine, is wildly enticing. Crispy peking duck pancake with a dash of hoisin sauce.
